    Don't buy one
    The handle is just plastic, I had a pine log I just cut off bump the carrying handle and it snapped off (It didn't hit hard enoughto put mark on the handle)

    Took it back to Sears they said I had abused the saw and repair wouldn't be covered by warranty.

    So much for Sears no questions ask warranties.

    BTW It was made by Poulan

    Poulan, or as we call 'em down here in TEXAS, "Pull On's", ain't worth a heck. They're makin' many saws for many different companies and puttin' that companies name on it. But, they're still Pull On's!

    Stay Stihl.

    Stihl here the best that there is. I had a buddy tell me that we should have just gotten a cheapo then i told him that they are cheap for a reason the more costly ones and the more costly ones are costly for a reason. Well he did not believe me oh well he can go waste his own money. But as for a chain saw stihl is the way to go we never had a problem out of ours. And it has been abused too.

    I would go back and say "satisfaction of your money back" just like it says on the door.I bought one of those saws a few years back and the oiler keeps pukeing out.And I know how to repair and adjust the darn thing.Another one to add to the ever mounding piles of stuff in corner of the garage. :D
